User:Highway Route Marker Bot

(also @Dschwen: @Krd: for input)

Hope all is well! I have a working instance of the code for your bot running in a Ubuntu VM, and have made some successful tests out at Test Wikipedia. Since you have been unable to handle requests since November 2014, I'm wondering if you wouldn't mind if I took over. (My hope is to eventually get a Mac or toollabs version of the bot running so that my more image-proficient colleagues can take over, but until then I have agreed to get it running in Ubuntu). I'm also not sure if you and/or the Commons community would prefer using the existing account, or starting a new one for a different operator. Anyway, thanks for your work getting it all set up. --Rschen7754 17:56, 27 February 2016 (UTC)

Hi Rschen7754. I don't really have an opinion if you should continue with the existing account or start with a new one, anyway, as the task hasn't been run for a longer time I'd suggest to put up a bot flag request for community input. We can approve this shortly if there is no objection. --Krd 18:18, 27 February 2016 (UTC)
Good day. I have no objections to you taking over the queue. However I could like to control the original bot account as there will still be some situations where I will want to upload images I have done. I suggest creating a new bot account, you can see my original request here. Good luck! --Svgalbertian (talk) 19:27, 27 February 2016 (UTC)

Saskatchewan municipal signs

Do you have access to the Saskatchewan MUTCD equivalent? I can't seem to find it online, which could be because I can't find what they call it in Regina. Anyway, I would like to try to do away with this if we can. Can you find it in the MUTCD and create an SVG file? Ideally, we would use just the top sheaf for en:Template:Jct usage at 20px. If somehow articles were created for these roads, we would require the whole sign. –Fredddie 00:18, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

I found the document, it is Saskatchewan Traffic Control Devices Manual and the sign is IB-2C. Not a great image and its not vector, but unless we know it is over 50 years old then it would be non-free anyways (see Template:PD-Canada). I did my own drawing, based on File:Route 663 sign.JPG. I chose that file just because the diagram in the manual doesn't really match the signs that I am seeing in the real world. I kept both parts separate. I think they can be combined in JCT template but I didn't look into it. Let me know your thoughts. --Svgalbertian (talk) 23:50, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
Oh nice. I still think the numbers would be far too small to see at 10x20px.   Hwy 663Fredddie 00:36, 25 April 2016 (UTC)
It is readable at 20px, but it is getting overly tall.  
 
. I will probably go head with the other signs just for the infoboxes anyways. --Svgalbertian (talk) 03:03, 25 April 2016 (UTC)
